Man Breaks World Record By Eating 17 Bhut Jolokia Chilli Peppers In One Minute

Every person has a different taste preference. Some like eating sweets while some like having spicy food. If you are someone who likes spicy food, then you must have heard about Bhut Jolokia chilli peppers or also known as Ghost Peppers. For all those who don’t know it, it is a pepper grown in Northeast India and is the spiciest chilli pepper in the world. But recently a man in the US created a world record by eating 17 of these chillies in a minute.

Man Creates Record By Eating Spiciest Pepper In The World

Gregory Foster from California ate about 17 Bhut Jolokia chilli peppers in 60 seconds and set a world record. According to the Guiness Book Of World Records, he broke the previous record of most ghost peppers eaten in a minute which was set in San Diego in November 2021. According to the Guiness World Record, Bhut Jholokia is the spiciest chilli pepper in the world because it contains one million scoville intensity units which is used to measure the heat of peppers. Mr. Foster loves spicy food to an extent that he grows his own pepper. He says that he has put in years to test his tolerance and increase the capacity of eating spicy food and probably that is why he could tolerate these peppers.
